06 Jul Home Learning: Year 5 w/c 6 July
Hello Year 5!
Welcome to this week’s learning tasks!
Our learning will be based around a short film called, “The Black Hat” (featured above).
This week, we will be focusing on up-levelling our vocabulary and using words for effect. Watch and listen to The Black Hat. Are there any words which have been used for effect?
Write a detailed description of the boy’ home in the woods.
Write a detailed description of our protagonist (main character).
Write a story about one of your own items (from the mysterious shop) being purchased and what happens next. Choose your words carefully, depending on the mood of your story.
Imagine that on returning to his house, the boy discovers another magical creature sleeping in his bedside drawer. What type of creature could it be? Could it be a combination of two or more different creatures? What different colours and patterns could it have? How does it move? What noise does it make?
Draw and label your creature. The labels should answer the above questions. Make sure that you use thoughtful adjectives in your labels. There are some on the word search page that you might like to use.
Write an information text about the creature you design. Try to use the scientific language shown in the word mat entitled “Animals Including Humans” to up-level your writing.
Use these word mats to help you up-level your writing throughout this week.
Practise your spelling by playing this game.
